Speaker

Education Reformist

With almost 30 years in education, founder and group CEO Anne Tham and her team at ACE EdVenture are paving the way for education.

Known as the ACE EdVenture Programme, she incorporated the “Oh! Effect” of learning instead of the traditional “memorize, spit out and forget the next day” method.

Anne continues to share her love for education on local and world stages which included TEDxKL and SLUSH-XcitED Finland. In the same year, she was named Woman of the Year by Her World Magazine. 

In 2017, she clinched the Female Entrepreneur of the Year and Platinum Award for Best Employer at the STAR Outstanding Business Awards, and was also inducted as a member of Endeavor Global.  After 32 years in education, Anne still teaches and will continues pushing the boundary beyond classrooms.

“The impact of language background”

Malaysia’s multilingual education system makes it a highly strategic country in which to conduct linguistic research. Our cross-campus, multidisciplinary research group utilizes the university’s unique tri-campus setting to conduct psycholinguistic research across disciplines such as Psychology, English, and Modern Languages and Culture, involving mono and multilingual of different linguistic backgrounds.

 

 

We use multiple techniques (behavioural, eye-tracking, and ERPs) to conduct basic and applied research into human cognition and language, focusing on areas, such as bilingualism and multilingualism, language acquisition, recognition memory, word recognition, and speech perception.

Hao Jin

Co-Founder, Me Books Asia

& Co-Founder, ChemCaper
(The World's 1st Chemistry Role Playing Game)

“We aim to pave the way in making reading accessible, enjoyable and affordable.”

After a career in advertising spanning almost a decade, Hao Jin changed industries in 2011 to pursue his passion for education technology.

He co-found the world's 1st chemistry adventure game, "ChemCaper," with Anne Tham and ACE EdVenture team,  which won multiple awards including Asia's Best E-Learning award, was featured at Google I/O in 2015, and covered by 800 media outlets globally.

Since 2016 he's been at the helm of Me Books Asia fulfilling his ambition of making world-class education available and affordable for every child. 

"A doctor with one pair of hands can only help so many, but a doctor with the power of literacy..."

Dr. Chatichai Chong

Co-Founder of Me Books, 

Doctor of Medicine , Russia State University

Having attained his medical degree in Russia, Dr. Chong spent 6 years working as a medical doctor, devoting his time to caring for underprivileged children and serving as Deputy Hospital Director at Hospital Serian, Sarawak before deciding to address another affliction of many of his patients and their communities - lack of access to education.

 

During my years in medicine, I saw underserved kids firsthand and even though I was able to help them from a medical standpoint, it hit me pretty quickly that they would still be miles away from having access to good education; often literally. I felt there must be a way for us to make use of technology and make education far more accessible with it. 

 

With Me Books, we're able to reach affluent parents in the cities as well parents in the more remote areas, and let every child engage with world-class reading content on the devices they already have.
